Jon Rahm British Open 2023 odds


The PGA Tour rolls on this week as the top golfers in the world prepare for the second major tournament of the season: the 2023 PGA Championship. This year’s version of the annual event takes place at the Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York beginning on Thursday, May 18.

Last year’s PGA Championship came down to the wire as Justin Thomas edged Will Zalatoris in a playoff at Southern Hills. It was the second time that Thomas had won the event since 2017, leaving time to tell if we’ll see someone else join the multi-time winner club this week.

Best Bets for the 2023 PGA Championship

Jon Rahm to Win Outright (+750)

As much as he’s accomplished throughout his career, Jon Rahm has never won the PGA Championship. Having said that, it wouldn’t be shocking if he capitalizes as the co-betting favorite this weekend.

Rahm has been playing phenomenally on the 2023 PGA TOUR. The 28-year-old golfer has placed inside of the top 10 in eight of the 12 events he’s finished thus far, cracking the top five seven times.

What’s even more impressive is that Rahm also racked up four victories ahead of this week’s festivities, taking home victories at the following tournaments:

  • Sentry Tournament of Champions
  • American Express
  • Genesis Invitational
  • Masters Tournament

In other words, Rahm has a ton of momentum behind him. That’s especially true considering how he’s coming off a runner-up finish in his latest outing at the Mexico Open.

After placing T48 at last year’s PGA Championship, Rahm is in a great spot to avenge that showing with a win at Oak Hill

Patrick Cantlay to Win Outright (+1900)

If you’re looking to get a bit more value out of a betting pick, Patrick Cantlay at +1900 odds is a good option.

Cantlay has been performing consistently throughout the 2022-23 golf season. Although he’s yet to taste victory this year, he’s racked up 10 top-25 finishes in 12 events, placing inside of the top 10 six times. He’s also finished third twice and was even the runner-up at the Shriners Children’s Open.

Having said that, some bettors might be concerned with Cantlay’s past PGA Championship history. After all, he’s placed T43 and missed the cut in two of his last three entries.

Nevertheless, I’m looking past those concerns due to his current momentum. Cantlay has been great in his eight events, placing third twice along with a pair of T4 finishes. It might be a bit of a long shot, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he picks up his first-ever major victory this weekend.

Brooks Koeopka to Win Outright (+2100)

Brooks Koepka might be on the LIV Golf tour, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t good enough to take home another major title this week.

Koepka is one of the few golfers in this year’s field who’s won the PGA Championship before. In fact, the veteran talent has won the tournament twice, taking home back-to-back victories in 2018 and 2019.

Although Koepka placed T55 last year, there’s a good chance that was a fluke. After all, he’s racked up five top-5 finishes in his past eight entries. In other words, he’s as much of a threat to win the event as anyone else.

It’s also worth noting that Koepka came close to winning his fifth major championship just last month, finishing T2 at the Masters. It’s clear that the 33-year-old still has plenty left in the tank as far as PGA competition goes, giving him a good chance to finish atop the leaderboard at Oak Hill.
